Throughout the summer months, Venture Abroad will be helping Scouts and Guides from across the UK to make their international adventures come true, with holidays to Kandersteg International Scout Centre in Switzerland.

We catch up with seasoned Venture Abroad Representative, Kate, about the arrival of the first groups of the summer and their experiences so far.

2nd Penrith Scout Group arrived early Saturday evening after flying into Geneva. Since arriving, the group has full immersed itself into the mini jamboree experience, getting up Sunday morning in time for flag break with the whole campsite. This week sees Scouts from Texas, Canada, Germany and many more.

After a quick getting to know you game, the group returned to camp to relax before taking part in the onsite international sports day.

Having cooked a yummy pasta dish, the group joined in with the international evening with groups celebrating where they were from – offering up plenty of opportunities for swaps! The Kanda river provided the perfect backdrop for the evening.

Tomorrow the group have an early start as they’re off to the thermal water park in the town of Brig! With all this hot weather, what better place to cool off?!
